Hi, not too long ago, I posted a similar thread and had my problem fixed. Or so it seemed, for a couple days it was fine, but now out of the blue I'm getting several URL;MAL warnings from my anti-virus every time I use the internet.

The alerts all look like this:

The URL and Process changes from alert to alert, but the infection type stays the same every time.

Could I please get some help?

Yes, the campus servers are redirecting the MS updates which is what Avast is objecting to.  The easiest way around this is to temporarily disable webshield whilst windows updates are downloading  

Alternatively click the hyperlink that states "Report the file as a false positive "
